Located at 1400 E 4th Ave in Anchorage, AK, ACC carefully assigns inmates based on their custody level, considering factors like criminal history. ACC offers diverse educational and vocational programs aimed at equipping offenders for successful reintegration into society and reducing recidivism. Through these initiatives, inmates gain skills and confidence, fostering personal growth and resilience.

The Anchorage Correctional Complex (ACC) serves the Anchorage Borough and Whittier, encompassing over 40 percent of Alaska's population across more than 1,900 square miles. Originally established as Cook Inlet Pretrial in 1993, the facility underwent an expansion in 2002. Spanning 253,000 square feet, the complex occupies over 14 acres of land within the Municipality of Anchorage and has a maximum capacity of 863 inmates. Functioning as a booking facility for male inmates, ACC accommodates unsentenced, sentenced, and Federal inmates across all custody levels. The complex includes an acute psychiatric unit, a full medical unit, and offers a range of programs to support inmate rehabilitation and self-improvement.

Inmates housed at the ACC have access to a variety of self-help programs tailored to their needs. Depending on their housing unit, inmates may participate in Alcoholics Anonymous, anger management courses, and educational programs. Educational offerings include basic education for individuals needing skills below a high school level, as well as GED programs covering high school education and diplomas. In addition, inmates can enroll in various computer courses and resume writing classes aimed at equipping them with essential skills for reintegration into society upon release.

Upon arrival at the Complex, inmates undergo a thorough booking process to ensure facility security and inmate safety. They are searched, cuffed, and escorted to the booking office. Inmates are advised to have no personal property with them but are encouraged to bring a small amount of cash for use in the facility's commissary. They undergo drug testing and a breathalyzer examination, followed by completion of a medical questionnaire. Subsequently, inmates are fingerprinted, photographed, and subjected to a strip search. They are then issued their prison uniform and informed of their housing location.

Once the booking process is complete, and inmates are settled into their assigned housing areas, they are granted the opportunity to make a collect phone call. This marks the initial step in their journey through the correctional process, with ACC providing the necessary support and resources to facilitate inmate rehabilitation and successful reentry into society.
